The Revolutionary Society for the Advancement of Sauna (Revolutionära Bastufrämjandet) (2020- ongoing)

The Revolutionary Society for the Advancement of Sauna is a relational artwork and a nomadic, hedonistic and utopistic institution. Its main venue is a self-built portable tent sauna, that can be put up anywhere to create a physical and mental space where new futures can be imagined collectively.

The institution was established in Oslo in 2020 by artists Emil Andersson, Helle Lindskog and Mattias Hellberg. We create small and large situations in and around the sauna, in public space, in nature, in peoples gardens etc. Together we are working for the radicalization of art, culture, humanity and life itself through the bringing together of people in heat, sweat, joy and bodily pleasure.
